    Hi Bob!

    I really like the 345/30 combination, but I think 19's may be pushing the clearance a little. I had to go with 18's in order to get the 335/30's inside the fenders. You may want to either give Factory Five a call and see what they say about it. (You could also go onto "TheFactoryFiveForum dot com", and post the question in the technical questions area. One of the Engineers from Factory Five will answer you pretty quick. Dave Smith has asked them to monitor that forum to help with builder questions.

    I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help. Tires and wheels are still a Gray area for most everyone.

    Take Care.

    Going to do it.
    What is your opinion on wheels? All Chrome may be too much.
    Maybe just the right chrome/black ones.
    Even thinking of roll cage being chrome (paint/clear)
    Can you say different?
    Chrome GTM emblems Shane could make them on his new toy or water jetted then chromed.
    With just the right accents in the engine and gauges and etc without overkill could be the ticket.

    Bob, There actually have been people talking about trying to do a "Chrome" paint job on their GTMs. but so far no one has had the stones to follow through with it as far as I am aware. It would sure make the car stand out even more! Flat Black accents would be just the ticket also. Can't wait to see that one.
